Why aren’t people in need seeking psychotherapy?  That’s the question that resonated in a recent California conference and that’s the question that got me thinking about my own psychotherapy practice. I often hear recently referred clients state that they liked their previous shrink but that all the therapist did was listen, “ I can get sympathy and understanding from
